There are 5-6 castles within a short trip of the city. Some of these historic landmarks are in remarkable condition. Taking a tour of the castles is something that you should take the time to do while you are there and it is very much worth paying for a professional tour that will bus you to the locations so that you can see them all.
The photos you’ll get from this trip will be amazing. Perhaps you will even see a ghost! Kiss the Blarney Stone while you are at Blarney Castle. This is a tradition for those who visit Ireland and is an absolute must.
